Haunted and Bewitched Ireland: Chilling Tales of Ghosts and Witchesby Bob Curran
Haunted and Bewitched Ireland contains twenty-one classic tales of Irish ghosts and witches that reveal as much about the complex cultural history of the land as about the universal ability of otherworldy phenomena to capture the imagination. Part one focuses on the stories of ghosts, wraiths, spirits, and spectres who visit the living, from County Limerick to County Down. Part two recounts the riveting stories of such infamous witches as Dame Alice Kyteler, Florence Newton, and Bridget Cleary, as well as numerous biographies of hedge witches, “fairy doctors,” and other reputed practitioners of the black arts.
With its combination of quintessentially Irish folklore and local history, Haunted and Bewitched Ireland radiates with the supernatural mystery of Ireland’s ancient traditions.
